's the republican, of course, mitt romney, watching as president obama kind of rambles through his talking points. now, you notice romney's kind of smiling just slightly there, but really, that is the look of a man who's thinking to himself, i have read your playbook, my friend. i knew you were going to say that, and i am all over you. doesn't matter what romney said. it doesn't matter if it was a so-called etch-a-sketch moment. what matters is it was the president who was stumbling andstruggling and looking woefully underprepared. there's a whole cottage industry out there devoted to speculating what went wrong but the "new york times" quotes white house advisors as saying the president's practice efforts were inconsistent and he thinks debates are a waste, more theater than substance. okay, but to take the theater analogy one step further, the awed dons doesn't care why the star can't perform and sometimes it is the understudy who gets the standing o. in other words, this race just got a whole lot more interesting over the last several days and the thing is, if we can believe the "new york time
